Information about planned and released features
1 Purpose and Policy
The ILIAS feature wiki is a documentation of the current ILIAS software development activities and a means to support the cooperative and open development process. It should clarify what is developed by whom, when and why. And it gives you an overview of what has been developed in former versions of ILIAS and what development activities are planned for the future.
With a regular user account for this ILIAS installation you are able to add comments to existing feature pages as well as adding new feature requests (see information for 'Suggesting a new feature' in the right column).
2 Jour Fixe Agenda

If you want the Jour Fixe to discuss a bug report, please change the status of the report in Mantis to 'Needs Jour Fixe Decision'. All bug reports with this status will be treated in the next meeting » more
Due to the changed Jour Fixe process you can no longer set topics on the agenda by yourself. Please fill out the form "Suggestions for Jour Fixe Agenda" to apply for a slot in the agenda. Submission deadline is always one week before the next Jour Fixe.
